Compendium, as the author fondly refers to this publication, is a collection of real-life surgical case studies followed by Q and A to provide an easy-to-read format. Coupled with a concise writing style, this will undoubtedly ease reader understanding and increase recognition of highlighted crucial surgical knowledge, thus providing a solid conceptual knowledge framework for medical students and aspiring surgeons. I could still vividly remember my surgical posting earlier in my career. It was both challenging and rewarding at the same time as most of the surgical patients presented with acute illnesses and yet make good recovery post-operatively. Their management frequently involved not only a sound understanding of basic sciences and surgical knowledge but also prompt decision making and risk reduction strategies to ensure the best outcome. Skills and knowledge I learnt then have continued to serve me well both in my clinical and administrative duties. I therefore have no doubts Compendium would serve to be a valuable learning tool in preparing current doctors for further surgical training. It must be a challenge to juggle time writing an academic book while simultaneously carrying out duties as a busy surgeon in the second largest hospital in Sarawak. I laud the author not only for having the intensity and passion to publish Compendium but also to disseminate the teaching of surgical knowledge to his junior doctors and medical students. Compendium is the first of its kind and I hope it will educate our future generations of medical students and junior doctors in the field of surgery while encouraging them to take up this demanding and yet so rewarding field. I also wish that Compendium will inspire other local aspiring doctors-cum-authors to delve into the world of academic publication to further improve medical care in both local and international settings.
